How to Communicate with a son or Daughter who Refuses to Speak with you?

by Edna Fenceroy on 07/08/19

This is one of many questions asked Ms. Edna for a response. There are several ways that you could initiate an open line of communication. The one Ms. Edna recommended is to write a letter to your offspring expressing a desire to mend the relationship, and responding to what issues she thought were challenging him. It is sad to have  such a precious relationship broken.  In the letter the mother reached out to her son to bridge the gap by explaining to him that he had nothing to do with his parents’ divorce.  She restated her unconditional love and invited him to give her a conversation at his convenience.  The relationship is now restored and the two are able to have meaningful conversations. The mother who asked this question wanted to know if her son were holding against her the divorcing of his father.

After listening to the daily news, many of us ask, “How can this be, or what happened in a person's life that would allow them to think it is okay to commit such an adverse offense upon someone?” If allowed, this blog will transform your thoughts and attitudes.

we all have our individual perceptions that may not be consistent with others. It is helpful to recognize that perceptions are real to the person holding them but may not always be factual .
